Fantastic show! Your championing of it is much appreciated. I don't know if I'd have found it otherwise :-)

So is 10/29/73, to keep with the ’73 theme. Even if Phil did have a Heineken every 15 minutes during that era, when he “wasn’t drinking or doing drugs.” (I guess it depends on the definition of “not.”) And if you folks are battening down the hatches and staying out of the weather, you’ll have time for both. (Edit -- um, I mean both shows!)

But poor Sandy. She really doesn’t deserve to have a storm like that named after her. At least not lately. It’s been at least a year since she ate the Playstation. Our sunny Sandy:

Stay safe, all!!! No playing of LLR allowed. Or even worse, Samson. I can't think of any GD lyrics about falling trees, but bringing down buildings seems like a bad suggestion right about now.

Great Picture! When i was growing up my neighbor had a dog named Sandy that had a very similar coat color and look. Not likely to have been an Indian Pariah dog in suburban philly.

Given the forecasts of this thing colliding with that polar express after landfall, I think Cold Rain and Snow might be on the no listen list as well. I'm guessing LLR wasn't on that many must listen lists anyway!

Good luck to all those in Sandy's incredibly large path. It really points to the inadequacies of using the Safir-Simpson Scale as the sole determinant of what the NHS considers a major hurricane (Class 3-5).

Yes, the 10/29/73 show is also splendid, particularly the "Eyes" from that show. Doesn't reach the jamming heights of 4 years later but is one of the sweetest versions around. Mellow and jazzy.

Our Sandy has never been to America, actually. She's an adopted street dog. She's what's known as an Indian Pariah Dog, a "primitive dog" and one of the most ancient types of dogs around. Also very smart and cute.

Indian Pariah Dogs ... that sounds like a good name for an indie band, maybe I'll suggest it to my son for his band.

Sandy's very pretty and sounds like a sweetheart! (Althea's dog, I mean, not this mothereffin' storm ...)

Hi Mando, thanks for asking, we're fine so far. Basically just a little wind and rain. We're stocked up with emergency supplies if the power goes out. The lights have been flickering.

Oh, the dreadful wind and rain ...

Reminder about hurricane Sandy:
Anybody remember Romney’s New Global-Warming ‘Joke’?
http://consortiumnews.com/2012/09/03/romneys-new-global-warming-joke/

At the 2012 Republican National Convention and on the campaign trail, Mitt Romney has come up with a new laugh-line, mocking President Obama’s policies to slow global warming. In doing so, Romney distorts a quote from an Obama speech in 2008 about ocean levels.

Romney has made clear one thing about his environmental views: he has contempt for President Barack Obama’s efforts to promote alternative energy and combat global warming.

Fitting with the new Republican orthodoxy that climate-change science is either a hoax or hysteria, Romney has incorporated into his speeches a joke about Obama’s interest in protecting the environment, a sure-fire laugh line for the GOP faithful.

In his acceptance speech at the RNC, Romney said, “President Obama promised to begin to slow the rise of the oceans (pause for mocking laughter) and heal the planet. MY promise is to help you and your family.”

Why is no one discussing global warming and climate change anymore? Last election season, presidential hopefuls Barack Obama and John McCain agreed that climate change was a critical issue demanding urgent attention. Four years later, both candidates Obama and Mitt Romney barely discuss climate change. In fact, the words were never uttered during any of the three presidential debates.

Because your boy Obama doesn't give a shit about climate change either. He only told you that 4 years ago because he knew it's what you wanted to hear so you'd vote for him.

The only difference between Republicans and Democrats is what they do with your money after they steal it.

I disagree. I think there is a big difference between Obama and Romney (and Dems and Republicans in general) on climate change and the environment. Obama hasn't been perfect, but he has delivered on some promises. We've doubled our output of renewable energy. Romney opposes many of the tax credits and other measure that make that possible. There are many other issues on which they differ: Including, of course, whether or not climate change is even real! At least Obama admits the obvious. Mitt and the rest of the R's have their heads buried in the sand.

The President just doesn't seem to want this election. Reminds me of Bush in '92 and Carter in '80. I can't believe some of the statements from his campaign, like when they pulled the financial plug in N.C. or the high level of rat jumping, Paul Begala being among the foremost.

Of course, no one is serious about being serious and the rearranging of the deck chairs makes my eyes flutter and my brain go weak. I don't know ... I'd naively like to hear something about energy self-sufficiency or maybe reconstructing our fiat currency ... silly me.

while there may be climate change, people have VERY little effect on it. I blame cyclic sun activity and natural earth cycles, while politicians cook the books and cash in on the blame game to put MANY idiotic EPA controls on my liberty.

You should admit that at least some of this is true - (or not)

Why doesn't the EPA go after Monsanto and it's poisen Roundup CRAP and GMO's, which cause serious health problems. Not a peep about this from Mitt or Obama. Imo, the EPA is a corrupt agency thats owned by controlling, globalist type-alarmists

I agree with Mando: "they're all Republicrats and thieves nowadays". Regardless, the difference between the two of them is that one of them is way more scary to me than the other. Both parties have abandoned their values and have completely sold out.

Re EPA: most employees there are career pollution players and they are part of the corporate-run revolving door system. EPA whistleblowers are being "gone after" more vigorously than ever, rather than being protected. The EPA are your polluters' best friends. It's always been this way, but it's much worse now because of all the lobbyists.

Re climate change: I believe in facts, truth, honesty, math, science, physics, and reality. These attributes worked damned well for me when I taped the Grateful Dead numerous times in 1973. Therefore, I agree with 97 percent of the world's scientists. They are saying global warming is being influenced by man-made causes due to the burning of fossil fuels. Atmospheric increases in CO2 are creating a greenhouse warming effect. Personally, I have never liked cap-and-trade as a fix to this.

Re Monsanto: All told, the production and processing of Monsanto's GMO crops, from deforestation to fossil-fuel-based pesticides and fertilizers, polluting factory farms, and fuel-intensive food processing and distribution, is estimated to produce up to 51% of global greenhouse gas emissions.

Re liberty: I'm taking my values to the grave with me. Among them has always been my own free-will to be open, willing, and able to change my own behavior, and to adapt my own thinking. I've never been a sheeple. And today I despise the misuse of the word "resilience" as some sort of global way to dodge the world's solvable problems. We hit 7 billion population in 2012. This is not about me. I am trying to die as fast as I can. Unfortunately, my dying quickly does nothing to benefit the dilemma that younger people are facing.

Lastly, Jerry Garcia and I agree 100 percent about the problems that deforestation are causing, and we both love and admire the Greenpeace organization and their activism. http://archive.org/post/434381/really-on-bobs-lap

13 Ways to Be a Sheeple (and guarantee you'll never tape anything)
-- written by Eduard Ezeanu

sheeple3.jpg

When you’re a sheeple, life is very simple. Each day you wake up, go to work, get back home, watch some TV, eat three meals and take one good shit. You’re not exactly living to your full potential, but you’re not stressing yourself either.

And being a sheeple is not hard, which is probably why lots of folks are doing an excellent job at being one. There is just a small set of specific things you have to do, and you’re guaranteed to be a certified sheeple. Here they are:

01. Emulate Other People’s Goals in Life
02. Always Follow the Latest Trends
03. Buy Expensive Stuff just because it’s From Famous Brands
04. Hang Out With Mediocre People
05. Get All Your Information from Mainstream Media
06. Don’t Stay Too Well Informed
07. Adopt the Opinions of the Majority
08. Always Obey Authority Figures
09. Avoid Disapproval like the Plague
10. Reject Divergent Ideas by Default
11. Let Inertia Be Your Guide
12. Judge Others Based On Appearances and Stereotypes
13. If Your Life Sucks, Blame the System

If you live by the rules I outlined so far, without any doubt, your life will suck. Yes, it will be simple and uncomplicated, but it won’t be fun and fulfilling either. Your emotions will mostly swing from boredom to mild amusement to frustration to depression to boredom again.

You’ll have little noticeable accomplishments and the main “adventures” you’ll go through will be stuff like spending an entire night at the office to get “an important report” ready for the next day.

When they realize their life sucks, the distinctive reaction of any authentic sheeple is to blame the system. So, do this.

Convince yourself that it’s not your fault; it’s the system’s fault. The system should have taken care of all your needs and make you happy, without requiring you to think for yourself, not believe everything you’re told, have initiative, find your own path and follow it.

Assuming responsibility for your own existence implies thinking responsibly and rationally. And that’s not what a sheeple does. It’s so much easier to blame the system! Your life will continue to suck, it will probably get worse with every passing day, but at least you will not feel guilty about it.

Okay! You now have the precise instructions for being a sheeple. I hope it’s obvious from the tone of this article that I showed you these instructions hoping that you’ll to the exact opposite of what they prescribe. This article is intended as a satire.

However, if taking the easy path is more important to you than living the best life you can, than by all means, follow these instructions. After all, that’s what a good sheeple does. It follows. And it’s possible that society needs sheeple, just as it needs free thinkers.
